Friday September 12

What been going on – Well we made it back from vacation. Whew was it hot in Modesto. 100 degrees is way too hot for this Alaskan Chick. There for 5 days and then we spent 4 days in Washington state. Oceanshores for 2.5 and Seattle area for 1.5 days. Hey I went to "So Much Yarn". It's a neat yarn shop on 1st Avenue in Seattle. I saw it on Ravelry. One of my "people" had gone there early this spring and it sounded like a place to scope out. I did buy some yarn and a pattern. I'll post pictures. My DH doctor's appointment went very well…so he was all up for the journey "Downtown Seattle". (They do not have good parking). We managed to find a parking spot. $3.00 later for 30 minutes. It was worth it. They we're very very friendly and I got a link to a pattern on Ravelry that they we're knitting called "Cashmere Neck Warmer". One skein, quick gift and I plan on making! Hey how about that Sara Palin!

What I'm Doing – Tonight "Friday Night Knit @ the grounds and then "Knitter's of the North" ,our local guild, tomorrow. I've signed up for a "Lace" class next week. The class got filled up while I was gone and a friend who signed up relinquished her spot to me! Thank you Karolyn you're a jewel. Catching up with work this week has been a "bear"

WIP – The "Forrest Canopy Shawl" is not coming along as planned. I really need to finish and I will put in on the front burner to finish this weekend I hope!!! My friends husband whom I pray for while knitting it will be in the hospital this weekend for a procedure and it would be great if I could give it to her Sunday….. we'll see.I did finish the "Fingerless Gloves" and I gave the to Bobbies dear friend at Oceanshores. We cried and laughed and we miss Bobbie terribly. I worked on my "2 socks on 2 circulars" and am pass the afterthought heel.

What Audiobooks I'm Listen To – I finished "Break No Bones" by Kathy Reich just today. And finish the playaway "The Lincoln Lawyer" by Micheal Connelly. Both we're very good. I'm listening to tge Playaway "Full Speed" buy Janet Evanovich. I just can't get into it. I also have "Full Blast" and "Thanksgiving" by Janet Evanovich… I might return till later time. I really want to start "The Broken Window" by Jeffery Deaver.

What's On My I-POD – The "Cast on", Knit Picks Podcast, Letsknit2gether (Video Podcast, and 11 Episodes of "Sticks and Strings" that I'd hope to get caught up while I'm on vacation didn't pan out. I did listen to a few but time got away from me. The "Letsknit2gether" it turning to be a very good find!

What's On My Night Stand – I finished the 2nd book by by Gilbert Morris now in the Series "Yellow Rose" and am ½ done with the 3rd book. If you like frontier based books Gilbert Morris is for you.
